First paragraph: This is the second edited collection published in English by the Besides the Screen network (there are other Portuguese-language publications). This prolific and international alliance has made space for a highly original approach to screen cultures, which brings academics, artists, curators, filmmakers and film exhibitors into dialogue and foregrounds materiality and practice. The conferences and events organized by the network, in Brazil and the UK (and, more recently, online), have been characterized by a unique mix of experimental art, exhibitions, workshops and multilingual conversations in an open and generative atmosphere. This collection reflects the network’s eclecticism, as the chapters range from the descriptive to the speculative, and from family memory to topology via inflatable venues and magic lanterns.
